Knowledge Sharing Project with TLM

Besipae is currently implementing a project with TLM, a micro finance organisation based in Kupang.

Together we are distributing two-way SMS's to more than 1000 beneficiaries across Kupang district. The aim is to provide communities with best practices on Health, Education, Gender Awareness, Financial Learning and other best practices. 

The initiative is intended to leverage changing trends in communications and dynamics in Indonesian society to help spread key messages on best practices. It is anticipated to provide a more cost-efficient communications strategy to reach the masses by using mobile phone communications to expand reach and foster engagement with rural communities. 

In July, the project is expected to expand to include social media and the creation of Facebook pages for each community to provide additional information, this will be supplemented with 3G and WAP services training.
